One of the pleasures of owning a home is walking out to the back porch to rest a spell. Away from the noise and traffic of a busy street, it’s a place of refuge. There are regular size back porches and then you expand to courtyards. From there they just graduate to “courts”.
The previous occupants of the Palace of Versailles had no lack of places to relax. How about a court that looked upon almost 50 statutes lining the walls and roofs? Toss in a little gold ornamentation along the roof and it could almost feel like home.
